INSTRUCTION & CONSULTATION

Myself a Woodsman with over 10 years experience plus the handed down knowledge from generations of Woodsmen.

My working life reflects my interests, including both Woodlands and Outdoor Education.

As a Woodsman I work tradionaly as my Grandfather once did with only Hand Tools & Horse Power.

I have gained extensive knowledge of the local natural world and the skills required to live comfortably outdoors.

Outdoor Education emphasises the effect of the natural environment on human beings, the educative role of stress and challenge, and experiential learning. Participants are at their "rawest" level when outdoors because they are "stripped" of many of the conveniences of modern life. Participants can become more aware that they are part of a greater ecosystem and are not as bound by social customs and norms. In essence participants can be true to themselves and more able to see others as people regardless of race, social standing & religion etc. Outdoor Education also helps instill the basic elements of teamwork because participants often need to work together and rely on others. Using the woods as a means to build independence and self-esteem in children and young adults.Topics are cross-curriculum (broad in subject) including the natural environment, for example the role of trees in society, the complex ecosystem supported by a wilderness, and recognition of specific plants and animals.

 

It has been defined as "an inspirational process that offers children, young people and adults regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence through hands-on learning in a woodland environment".
